Beatrice Costa

Local Researcher

Area: Italy

Beatrice specialises in design research and design strategy.

Her role as Strategic Designer at Futureberry, and her active involvement in their ‘Market Revolution’ Inspiration Lab enables Beatrice to enhance her capabilities in ethnographic research that focuses upon worldwide trends. In addition, she will soon be teaching a course in New Business Models at Istituto Europeo di Design‎ (IED) Milano. She has a particular interest in addressing gender inequality within Italy. Beatrice believes misguided attitudes induce unacceptable consequences for women – financially, physically, and emotionally.

Beatrice has gained a BA qualification in Product Design from Central Saint Martins, and an MA in Strategic Design from Politecnico di Milano. She has lived in the UK, and is based currently in Italy. She speaks Italian, English and Spanish.
